Electronic Arts Has No Interest In Developing HD Remasters, Says Peter Moore

Electronic Arts has no interest in developing HD remasters or HD re-releases of older games, said EA COO Peter Moore. To Moore, when a company constantly does that, it sents out the idea that the development teams have run out of ideas.

"It feels like pushing stuff out because you've run out of ideas," Moore told IGN. "Remakes, because of who we are, and this broad portfolio of intellectual property...you add all that together, I don't know where we find the time to do remakes. We're a company that just likes to push forward."

Despite this, Moore doesn't see HD remasters as a bad thing for industry, as it helps drive revenue. "For a lot of companies, remakes are a way to drive revenue. It's sub-cost, it's an IP that's there, you can remaster, and that's great. We don't do that here. I don't think that's ever been in our culture."

One of the main reasons that HD remasters are released these days is due to the fact that consoles aren't backwards compatible, but with Microsoft adding backward compatibility to the Xbox One in just a few weeks, this problem is solved, at least on Microsoft's side.
